Cucumber Cheddar Boats
- six Kirby or other type of pickling cucumbers
- eight ounce block of cheddar cheese
Thoroughly wash and pat dry the cucumbers. Slice them in half lengthwise, so they form a boat shape. Cut the cheese into the shape of a triangle so it looks like a sail. Place the toothpick into the cheese triangle sail and place the other end of the toothpick into the cucumber boat. You may have to experiment with the size of the triangle until you find the size that is big enough, but will not tip the boat over. Also, the size of cucumbers varies, so you may have to experiment with the number of cucumbers needed. Photos of the finished cucumber cheddar boats are in my post by the same title, as an example. It probably goes without saying that these treats taste best when they are cold, so try to keep them in the refrigerator or a cooler until you are ready to serve them. Enjoy!
